2017 | The Year of the Yin Red Fire Chicken

Kung Hei Fat Choi! Happy Chinese New Year 2017 to everyone from wonder | wander | women!

Being part Chinese and mostly Asian, we celebrate Chinese New Year with lots of fanfare and food.

Last year was the year of the Fire Monkey and many of us were tested and challenged by the naughty antics of this wily creature.

The year of the Yin Red Fire Rooster is the Year of Money, symbolized by seven Chinese characteristics of punctuality and prosperity.

Though it is not a national public holiday, Chinese New Year is celebrated in many parts of the world and especially in Asian communities.
